Setup an App in your ExactTarget account
To enable PromoSimple to communicate with your ExactTarget account you will first need to create an application within the Code@ExactTarget AppCenter. This is to provide you with an API Key and Secret. If you do not current have an App Center account you can create one rather quickly by clicking on Create Account on the Login page. Once your account has been created you can follow the steps below to create your App.
1. Select your template (Server-to-server)
When you are logged into the AppCenter it will give you three options for your template. Click on Server-to-Server.
2. Define the app
For the name parameter enter ‘PromoSimple’ and for the package enter ‘promosimple’. The description field is optional if you would like to add in text about the app you are creating.
3. Authenticate your HubExchange account
Select your account from the dropdown menu and be sure to select ‘Production’ for the app type. When you click on Authenticate you will need to log into your Hub Exchange account, which is where you would manage your ExactTarget Lists and subscribers.
4. Data access
In the data access section you will need to scroll down to the Contacts section. You will need to check the two boxes for Read and Write under Lists and Subscribers.
5. Double check your settings
Be sure to check that Read and Write are enabled for Lists and Subscribers Data Access on the Summary section. Click Finish and you will be taken to the settings for your new App.
